Deer Moon Astrology, 7/4/2021

Today, the Cancer sun squares Chiron in Aries. This can have a multitude of effects in all areas of your life that motivate you to be the best version of yourself today and for years to come.

Usually with Chiron transits, we are awakening parts of our heart that hurt and feeling wounds that cut deep. Instead of sulking and internalizing the drama, you can use it to express yourself through art. Using hurt, pain, and trauma as a creative source can take your artistry to new heights. You can plumb the depths of your subconsciousness to enrich and expand your heart.

The flip side of this transit is that it can give you the chance to help others boost their confidence and build up their ability to mend past setbacks. It can inspire you and others to take a leap of faith and move out of the past.

Letting go of emotional pain takes a lot of work and time. This isn’t something that can be accomplished overnight. However, today is a chance to allow yourself to get it right and walk down the path that inspires you to grow. By the end of the day, you’ll be able to make a conscious note of where you’re going and refresh your energy.

We may tend to shift our focus away from freedom today and look more closely at our desire for safety and security. The Sun-Chiron square, from Cancer to Aries, may have us dialing back our demands for freedom and independence in order to find some sense of stability. Our rebellious attempts to free ourselves have costs which are more directly visible today. The morning’s Moon-Mars square may bring any ego vulnerabilities to a head. Essentially, the overall mood today is more cautious and tentative than what we saw yesterday.

Your energy is likely to be high today, hence the need for temperance. You may get a lot done but you may also exhaust yourself by the end of the day. Pace yourself so you can complete your busy schedule successfully.

You may also find yourself examining the inner you, your life, your thoughts, your motives and embark on a deeper exploration through personal development books, courses techniques or even therapy.

Temperance carries with it a very strong spiritual message also. In achieving the equilibrium your heart and soul really seeks, you can feel a closer connection to the divine, experience stronger intuition and receive clear messages from higher sources.
